Today, on July 3rd, International Drop a Rock Day begins its celebration! The best way to get involved is by sharing your creative projects. But first, let's remember the origins of this wonderful holiday.
What is the kindness rocks project and why did this trend go viral? The first message of kindness was created by Megan Murphy in 2015 on one of the Cape Cod beaches. After her first kindness rock message was found, she began to create more projects.
This trend originated in the United States and later spread to the UK, Australia and some other countries. The idea of spreading kindness rocks is so that other people, bystanders, can find these wonderful projects, created with warmth and kindness to share goodness.
